Sunday Poser # 42

Welcome to another Sunday Poser.

Today my question is about pros and cons of reblogging!

What is your opinion about Reblogging; yes or no?

There are two parts of this question;

1. Reblogging posts from other bloggers;

I usually reblog the first 2-3 responses to my weekly prompt, WDYS on Monday. These reblogs are before my regular posts. I usually use the reblog button at the site of the blogger. This generates an automatic notification about the reblog. I get a positive feedback from those who’s posts I am sharing.

2. Others reblogging your posts;

Now to the other part of this equation. There are a few bloggers who routinely reblog my posts. They do it through the reblog button and I get notifications from this activity. But recently, I am seeing posts linked to my published posts in the comments. When I click on the links, I’m taken to an unknown blog where the blogger has shared my post, in a proper way, but without using the reblog button. They never intimate me or ask for permission. This is something which irritates me and Paula has also noticed and talked about it in her post.

My question here is; Are you okay when your posts are reblogged?

And do you feel that the one reblogging/sharing should ask your permission or intimate you beforehand?

The last question is even more important, do you read reblogged posts?

Please share your thoughts in the comments section.

  1. Thanks for the link back, Sadje. It does annoy me, though I asked one and she said she thought it might be of interest to her readers. OK. I also asked another one to take it down and he did. But most are so random I can’t be bothered. I don’t know what they’re getting out of it. When I visit their sites they generally have no likes or comments from anyone on any posts. So I just delete the trackback and try not to worry about it!

  2. I don’t have this as a problem because it’s only happened once from unknown blogger. As a rule if I’ve read the original post I don’t read the reblog of prompted items.

  3. I think maybe once or twice in the whole time I’ve blogged that someone re-blogged one of mine.
    I don’t re-blog anyone’s posts.
    I don’t read any post that has been re-blogged either. I go to someones blog to see what ‘they’ have to say, not something from somewhere else.
    The only thing I share is videos for prompts. I may leave a relevant link sometimes to another of my own posts though.
    Mostly I don’t follow any links to other places when I see them on a blog.

  4. Hmmm. I don’t reblog posts, yet will link to people’s sites in a post, which is a different activity, I think. I’m okay with people reblogging my posts. I don’t mind. I do read reblogged posts when they are on a site I already follow. I think I got all the questions. 😄

  5. I rarely reblog other bloggers’ posts, but when I do, I always clearly state that it’s a reblog of someone else’s post and create a link to that post.

    As to others who reblog my post, as long as they say something like “originally posted by Fandango at This, That, and the Other, and link it back, I’m okay with it.

    Do I read posts that are reblogged? More often than not. But it depends upon my time availability.

    1. Yes, that’s the proper way to reblog. Thanks for sharing your thoughts Fandango. As for reading the reblogged post, it indeed depends on the time we have. But sometimes the title or the picture grabs our attention straight away

  6. I am new to blogging and have recently had this happen. A food site reblogged 2 of my recipes but didn’t notify me. Though you can see the link to my blog so at least people can see it is my original recipe. It has actually helped get people to make blog

  7. I have reblogged occasionally. The post has to be pretty special for me to decide that my followers would be interested. More than likely you are reaching the same readers that already have read the post, since they probably follow many of the same blogs.
    I don’t mind getting a post reblogged, for much the same reason, what I wrote had to have been interesting enough to warrant doing so, so I take it as a compliment.
    You can turn off comments on a post, can you do the same for sharing?

    1. Thanks for sharing your thoughts Leon. I feel the same way about the reblogs. You can turn off the reblog button on your blog but it can always be shared from the WordPress reader. That cannot b red turned off.
